our story

"I believe we need less stuff and more meaning in our lives. I became curious about the zero-waste movement, quickly realizing it is not easy or accessible in our day-to-day reality. The goal of Sol is to help us bridge the gap between our current habits and the new ones we aspire to embrace."

-Sydney, Founder

WHY SOL?

When the sun rises, it rises for everyone (can we do that?)

The sun always shines, without us asking it to (how inspiring!)

Sydney's mom used to call her "sunshine" (embarrassing to admit.)

A play on the word "soul" (well, just because.)

A nod to the Sunrise Movement - the inspiring youth-led revolution to reduce climate change and reimagine America for the health and wellbeing of all people.

Zero vs. Low
Zero-waste: A lifestyle where people strive to use no single-use plastic and ultimately send zero trash to the landfill. You may have seen pictures of a year's worth of waste in a single mason jar. It's inspiring! And the people that accomplish this are truly something else! What we've learned is zero-waste is not the easiest to achieve in our busy day-to-day routines. The term "zero" seems to minimize the efforts we are taking if we happen to produce some waste.

That's why we believe in a #lowwastelifestyle.
